Description: Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen...
Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.

The restaurant was quite busy at the start of our meal, but still service was very good. Enjoyed the signature menu which was outstanding from start to finish. Nice wine selection. Prices were reasonable for the quality and level of service, particularly for Oslo.

Reasturant is located in the very center of Oslo. It offers fantastic food, the staff is very friendly and proffesional. It's a bit dark interior.

The many times I have been there the food was very good, though sometimes over-spiced. The atmosphere may be good for 20-40 year olds, but I find it quite loud and so dark its hard to read the menu. The fusion ideas are good. Lots of people really like this place.

We went here for my parents anneversary, the place was packed which is usually a good sign. Nice, genuin atmosphere (if one can say that without really knowing the proper atmosphere for the Szechuanian and Kantonesian kitchen). For someone like me -not very wandered in Asian cuisine- the menu looked a bit 'scary' so I safed it with Chicken Gongbao... More

Have been at this resaurant several times and it is always lovely. Very good food! The locations are a bit narrow and small, specially downstairs. But it is worth a try :)
